Beacon is a mid-size, unisex frame with a rectangular, boxy shape and subtle surface design features that make it an all around, style-driven, performance piece. Injection molded out of TR-90 for maximum weight reduction, flexibility and comfort, Beacon features recessed Variflex™ nose pads buried in the bridge to secure and comfortably anchor the frame in place.
Wrapped and raked with 8.25 base curve lenses, Beacon supports Kaenon’s revolutionary SR-91® lens material and our proprietary Glare 86® polarizing element, providing broad spectrum protection against 100% of all harmful UVA and UVB rays. Heavy duty, non-corrosive, five-barrel, stainless-steel hinges make Beacon durable and functional. Beacon comes with a micro-fiber cleaning bag and a lightweight sport case. Beacon is Rx adaptable.
